Love this forum. I am a pretty big Zeppelin fan and one of my favorite songs in one a lot of people have never heard of, but brings out, imho, the best of all four musicians.

Totally banging, but that is just me.

FOCUS? As in Hocus Pocus?

Rated R for language and violence but check out the synchronization.

Playing out of key and off tune…not getting it quite right all the time… someone should write a song about that.

I actually have a spreadsheet I’ve used to track the bands I’ve seen since I was a teenager. It’s currently sitting at 254 different bands and a total of 402 sets (seen lots of bands multiple times). It’s been a fun exercise to track, especially seeing how things have changed over the years.

The album I’ve spun the most this week is the new Incantation, “Unholy Deification”. I’ve always dug the way they straddle the line between doom and death metal, and this album is no exception.

The new Cannibal Corpse is pretty fun too. Can’t wait to see them with Mayhem in a couple weeks!

Probably missing a few, plus dozens of bands that aren’t famous:

Rolling Stones (1972 & 2005)
Metallic (warm up band for Stones)
Fleetwood Mac
Grateful Dead
Chicago
Santana
James Taylor
Malo (TV show taping)
Kenny Rodgers (TV show taping)
Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks (TV show taping)
Jerry Lee Lewis
Leon Russel
Albert King
Aussie Floyd (6 months ago, supposedly best Pink Floyd cover band, they were spot on)

I would have missed all the above in order to have seen The Beatles.

I got to see The Mac on their Tusk tour (Weber State homecoming concert), but never again. If they truly are gone for good, I cannot complain. Over 4 decades of amazing work. IF I understand correctly they recently booted same Buckingham from the band… Again :astonished::face_with_hand_over_mouth::laughing:

I have no idea what you just said; but I’m glad you said it.

The riffs in this song are extremely strong, but what I love is that this is a great example of a late 60’s early 70’s use of the Hammond Organ.

A couple of you mentioned The Who. It is March 1980 at the old Salt Palace, 18 year old me (someone who felt guilty if he was late to class, let along missing class) needed to see this concert so bad, I camped in a snow storm for three nights to get tickets.

I saw them in March of 1976. Was lucky enough to see them while Keith Moon was still alive.
